Ocean House, room 9 was situated along the pool area; as the TripAdvisor rating was pretty high so were my expectations. However, first off was the parking... very tight and hard to maneuvering leaving parking area. The room itself was of a reasonable size but in need of some upgrades. Pots & pans badly pitted, bedspreads were threadbare and the...

We went for a family vacation (6 of us, three generations). Rented two motels and one room in the hotel. Everything is clean. Just a few steps from the beach. Nice pool, but a bit crowded. The house offers many different lounges where you can read or where you can get together to chat. This made our stay very enjoyable.

Nice place directly on the beach and near the pool. Perfect with children. However, the kitchenette was not very well equipped. We have already seen much better. Pots should be replaced. The water has boiled after 2 hours (the bottom of the cauldron was lumpy). Ish... Coffee may be provided. No shampoo in the bathroom. The motel and the hotel...

I was invited to go with a friend and her children as her husband could not make it due last minute work scheduling. So I gladly agreed as I'm an ocean junky. unfortunately being used to the ocean in Cuba, Old Orchard sure pales in comparison. I had heard so many stories of Old Orchard from my mother when she...

I found the room to be clean, simple and comfortable for my stay. The motel is located steps away from the beach so it was easy to grab my stuff and be on the sand in seconds. The help was willing to go the extra mile despite the busy conditions. I will be staying here again in the future!

Shut your eyes and you can picture the grandeur of yesteryear - parlors, bar, screened porches etc. However, it is unfortunate that the rooms are most inadequate and provide only the bare essentials. With "No Vacancy" signs posted everywhere in town, we took a chance. The room was said to be lovely - oceanfront on a corner with three windows....

Perfect spot for a family trip to Maine. Our room was very comfortable for us. We stayed in the streetfront side, with a little living room and kitchenette. Nice pool right on the beach, and we played cards in the old fashioned large hotel parlors during the evening. Lots of space to move around, and I didn't feel like we...

Our family has been going to the Ocean House for 31 yrs. with children that are now 42-20 yrs.(some still visit the Ocean House). We have stayed in every unit, except the main building, and enjoyed the close proximity to everything. Next door is a shop for that early morning coffee/paper & donut, or an early morning breakfast/brunch just 2...

“If you want basics, stay in the House itself (for ocean lovers). If you want air conditioning cable tv, a kitchen etc, stay in one of the motel units. The Ocean House has all these kinds of rooms so be sure to ask what you want.”

“The side motel had cable, tv, air conditioning and a nice kitchen. The old house facing the ocean is the real star if you are looking for a taste of the past splashed with quiet and wifi for dash of technology. The front rooms are also are part of this motel so if you call, be sure to specify what you want, because they have it all.”
